- ... Streptomycetes resistant to the herbicide alachlor [2-chloro-2,6-diethyl-N-(methoxymethyl) acetanilide] were used in degradation assays to characterize the products of alachlor biodegradation. Of six strains tested, Streptomyces sp. LS166, LS177, and LS182 were able to grow at an alachlor concentration of 144 mg l-1 and degraded approximately 60-75% of the alachlor in 14 days, as evaluated by high ...
